Kashmiri (कॉशुर / كٲشُر)

Kashmiri or Koshur is a member of the Dardic subgroup of the Indo-Aryan language. It has around 5.5 million speakers mainly in the Kashmir Valley in Jammu and Kashmir in northern India. There are also around a hundred thousand Kashmiri speakers in Pakistan.

Kashmiri first appeared in writing during the 8th century AD in the Sharda alphabet, which is still used in religious ceremonies by Kashmiri Pandits. After the arrival of Islam in Kashmir during the 15th century, the Arabic script was adapted to write Kashmiri. Today Kashmiri Muslims write their language with the Arabic script, and Kashmiri Hindus used the Devanagari alphabet.

Kashmiri is one of the official languages of India, and is taught in all schools in the Kashmir valley.
